I think it was the 805 and above in last year's Onkyo models that could handle 192 kHz TrueHD and DTS-MA. It's due to the fact they have more processing horsepower with three high end TI processing chips.
But, if you want the FULL resolution of a higher than 96 kHz track, you have to have the receiver or pre-amp on direct mode without any other post-processing applied.
You can actually tell the Onkyos what to do by default with different types of inputted signals.
Like if it's hit with 192 kHz sampling then you can tell it to go right to direct mode every time.
Listen up, studios! Just say "NO" to DNR and EE!!
